Happy Birthday to Some Amazing Ladies!

Wendy O. Williams - 2Wendy O. Williams

Today we have some amazing women to celebrate, in no particular order.

First up, Wendy O. Williams, of Plasmatics fame! Wendy O. died in 1998. She was a total inspiration to me as a teenager. I saw her band many times and got to meet her too. She was super nice.

Here’s a Plasmatics tune and their outrageous stage show:

Plasmatics – Butcher Baby

Today is also the birthday of Gladys Knight.

Here is my favorite song by her:

You’re the Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me

It’s also Kylie Minogue’s birthday. I love this piece she did with Nick Cave:

Kylie Minogue & Nick Cave: Where The Wild Roses Grow

It’s also my Mom’s birthday. She really loves this song by the late Mick Karn:

Mick Karn “Sensitive”

Now how’s that for some eclectic musical enjoyment?
